Halkett Boot - Rock Eco Veg Suede

Select Size

In the US & Canada, Viberg Boots size differently so we recommend sizing down 1 full size, or if you have wide feet, 1/2 a size down. Unless noted, all widths are size E.

Worldwide, take your standard size. If you need sizing help, reach out on chat.

Our 2020 last is based on an anatomical shoe last that will hold and support the natural shape of your feet providing a comforting fit with a smarter-looking silhouette. We wanted to find the balance between our traditional almond toe 2030 and semi anatomical 2040 last while allowing for an elegantly shaped shoe. The 2020 features a D width forefront with a narrow tapered waist and average heel width to hold and support your feet.

The Halkett is a Derby-style boot inspired by a 1940s-era Canadian Officer pattern.  The last sits above the ankle and because the throat of the boot is closely trimmed and allows for very tight lacing, the Halkett is slightly more formal than our Service Boot®. Constructed with our Viberg Channeled Insole Goodyear Welt method, the Halkett is resolable and, with proper care, will last a lifetime.

Eco Veg suede is a new proprietary Stead tannage that is chrome and metal-free.  Aside from being weatherproof and environmentally friendly, the absence of chrome produces an unusually bright and clean color profile that is not present in any other suede tannages.

Small batch, limited run production from our factory in Victoria, BC.

Halkett Boot

The Halkett is inspired by a Canadian Military Officer pattern. This is a Derby-style boot that sits above the ankle. We have finished this style with a tightly trimmed heel and waist. The inside and outside waist have been trimmed with a round blade to allow it to contour to the shape of the last. The throat of the boot allows for very close lacing to create a more elegant look.
